The school update our assessments six times a year and parents are informed of these on parents evening or on request. Their main purpose is for internal tracking of pupil's progress.

The End of Year Expectations for pupils for the New National Curriculum are available below by year group. These will provide a useful tool to tell how your child is progressing towards meeting the end of year expectations.
